2. Torx Keys

Torx bolts are often preferred to bolts with Allen key heads on bike components, though the takeover is not yet complete.

Disc-brake-rotor hardware is nearly all Torx already, and Campagnolo uses Torx on many of its newest components, as does SRAM throughout its XX group and FSA for chainring bolts.

Three sizes will cover everything you need (for now): T-10, T-25 and T-30. Park Tool makes a folding set (TWS-2C, £19.99, madison.co.uk) that has these sizes and more.
